The Honda S.M.A.R.T. or (Safe Motorcyclist Awareness and Recognition Trainer) is a computerized traffic simulator that allows beginning riders the opportunity to operate a motorcycle in real life situations without the real world consequences. The Honda SMARTrainer uses state of the art software and actual Honda motorcycle controls to give the rider an opportunity to learn basic motorcycle control operations such as clutch, brake, throttle, and gearshift coordination in a computer simulation environment. It also offers intermediate or experienced riders the opportunity to operate in more risky traffic situations giving them a chance to evaluate and address the various safety scenarios in a controlled environment.
This machine is a very special device using the following controls and Computer systems:
* Twist Throttle
* Start Button
* Hand Brake
* Turn Signals
* High/Low Beam Lights
* Engine Cut Off Switch
* Foot Brake
* Gear Shift Lever
- Please Note, This machine does not allow for leaning

The Honda SMART Device simulates 17 different riding scenarios. Two of the scenarios are for beginning riders: Clutch Operation & City Riding. The remaining 15 scenarios are hazard prediction courses testing the riders accident avoidance and prediction skills. Each of these scenarios can be run in 3 different modes: Day, Night, & Fog. In addition the Honda SMART Device offers the rider a choice of operating a standard Manual Shift motorcycle or an Automatic scooter. In total the SMART Device offers 164 different operating scenarios, giving the rider many chances to get it wrong in simulation, but not in real life. With many different scenarios and real-life controls, the Honda SMART Device offers riders invaluable training in a structured environment.
Students will receive 20 minutes on the S.M.A.R.T. Device and 10 minutes of review with this course.
